For a decade, Terrasol has been creating solutions for your larger tree moves. Having started small, we quickly realized the demand for large trees relocation for homeowners, companies, and organizations. Our nursery division specializes in relocating trees to or from your site – no matter what size – and planting them properly. We go the extra mile to install your trees professionally and boast a 98% success rate on our moves.
Our new 110 inch truck mount tree spade is capable of relocating a tree with ease. The wide opening reduces the chance of damaging branches and the sheer girth of the blades ensures more roots are left intact. Both of these factors are critical for maintaining the health of your tree for years to come. Relocated trees can be moved onsite or transported miles away. Trees that are relocated in a tree spade means less handling, which reduces the stress on the tree.
When the presence of underground utilities or the utter size of the tree makes tree spade operation too cumbersome, Terrasol can create a hand dug custom cribbed root ball for lifting. Our knowledgeable crews, with years of digging expertise, have developed unique techniques of hand dug root balls. Hand digging assures the root mass is left intact while working around utilities, roadways, and buildings, guaranteeing minimal shock to the tree after relocation.
Planting trees with success require experience. Improper planting results in unnecessary stress as the tree starts to establish new roots and can lead to its death. At Terrasol we understand the measure needed for success and have the proper equipment needed to ensure a proper tree relocation. From proper cribbing and lifting, to transportation, to soil installation and stability around the new root zone, to proper anchoring, we helped write the book.
Terrasol has accepted hundreds of challenges to safely relocate even the most mature trees. Creating custom cribbed, hand dug rootballs is a specialty of ours, and we boast the same 98% percent sucess rate of custom large tree moves as we do for our tree relocation with spading.
We can arrange all of the finer aspects of your tree relocation, like day-lighting underground services, erosion protection, site cleanup including hydroseeding, tree anchoring, and watering maintenance. Our fleet includes cranes, long truck decks, water tanker trucks, and excavators.
Often times certain projects do not allow for trees to be relocated until after completion of a project. Our fully staffed tree nurseries in Langley, BC are capable of tending to your trees for days or years until the tree’s final location is ready.
